Draft Vision of Health Canada’s First Nation Communities in Crisis Initiative
Through strategies aimed at strengthening
community resilience, First Nation community
wellness is enhanced (thereby minimizing the
incidence of communities being at-risk or in crisis).
Community Resilience as BALANCE among a set of categories of Determinants of Community Health
control over local services and programs
colonialism/dependence on govt.
nature of justice system/ restorative justice
equitable distribution of household income
diversity of economic resources in the community
equitable distribution of economic opportunities/jobs in the community
equitable distribution of economic “power” within families
labour force capacity, ie. levels of educational attainment
incidence of welfare recipients
culture and language
overcoming the residential school experience / truth and reconciliation
incidence of suicide and suicide ideation
incidence of addictive & abusive behaviour
existing or emerging human risk
quality of water/sewage infrastructure
quality of housing stock
basic community capacities
COMMUNITY RESILIENCE AS A BALANCE AMONG COMPONENTS OF THE MEDICINE WHEEL
